a vote today. they are miles apart. paul ryan's plan, no new revenue. senator patty murray is proposing $1 trillion in new revenue. house republicans want to reduce the deficit. gop makes huge cuts to medicare and medicaid. the democratic plan relies on $275 billion in health care savings. president obama goes back to the hill. as "the washington post" puts it, the honeymoon is over. the president's approval rating is down to the 50% mark, although he's still doubling the approval rating of house democrats. i want to bring in politico senior reporter. good morning to both of you. manny, the headline on politico is budget plans or works of fiction. which is it? >> they are vision documents. i don't think anyone expects what both paul ryan and patty murray have proposed those proposals to become law. what it will do is create a process here in washington that may eventually lead to something down the road. whether that's a compromise or grand bargain, it's very far-fetched. both sides would have to go a lot closer to each other, something they have not been able to do. there are provision
. "out front" tonight, the budget drifter walks alone. we've learned quite a bit about paul ryan's musical tastes. >> today, we learned a little bit more about what falls in between. w, as in white snake. ♪ here i go again on my own ♪ going down the only road i've ever known ♪ like a drifter i was born to walk alone ♪ >> he was walking alone again. without any support from across the aisle from his budget proposal. and when he introduced his latest economic blueprint, it sounded awfully familiar. >> now, let's step into our time machine and head all the way back to march 2012 to a place like mike myers. >> paul ryan walks the only road he's ever known while the president is reaching out to his republican foes. ryan's fellow, republican congressman, peter king of new york. good to see you, sir. >> always appreciate it. >> president obama has been making a bit of an effort: is paul ryan doing the same? >> yeah, of course he is. republicans have their marker there. the president is coming to meet with us tomorrow. and i'm hopeful, listen, this is not going to change overnigh
to "hannity," the chance for reeconomic prosperity has been unveiled. paul ryan will be joining me momentarily to detail his bold and controversial budget plan. let's look at what he's proposing and why the democrats and president need to listen and act. according to the fiscal blueprint, the budget will be balanced in ten years and will not raise taxes. how does he accomplish this? he doesn't spend what we don't have. here is how the congressman explained it earlier today. >> this budget cuts spending by 4.6 trillion dollars offer the next ten years. historically we've paid a little less than 1/5 of our income to the federal government, but the government has spent a lot more. we match revenues with expenditures, so the budget matches the spending with income just like every family and business must do throughout america. >> sean: to help us reach this balanced budget in ten years, congressman ryan lays out four major issue we as a country must tackle. first, energy. ryan's plan paves a path for affordable and american produced energy, most notably, the plan green lights the keystone pipeline
. let's remember the president said this earlier this week: >> paul ryan today put forthhis budget and is challenging you to come forward with a budget that also reaches balance. are you going to do that? >> no. we're not going to balance the budget in ten years, because if you look at what he does to balance the budget, you have to voucherrize medicare. you have to slash deeply into programs like medicaid. my goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. >> let's not do that. our commander-in-chief doesn't think we need a balanced budget, and his democratic cohorts in the senate appear to agree with him. senator patty murray, the democratic chair of the senate budget committee, finally released their liberal budget plan, and in the next ten years in their budget government spending would increase by over $2 trillion. that's a 58% increase, but that's not all. the republicans on the senate budget committee also crunched the numbers and under the democrats' plan they would race taxes by $1.5 trillion. they just raised taxes. why would anyone think this budget
is upside down in favor ability. paul ryan is viewed favorably by 35%. in republican voters, he dropped to 52% from a high of 83% last august when he was chosen to be the next losing vice presidential candidate who will never be president. paul ryan's budget twilight zone is coming up. the "rewrite" is next. protein i, impact life expectancy in the u.s., real estate in hong kong, and the optics industry in germany? at t. rowe price, we understand the connections of a complex, global economy. it's just one reason over 75% of our mutual funds beat their 10-year lipper average. t. rowe price. invest with confidence. request a prospectus or summary prospectus with investment information, risks, fees and expenses to read and consider carefully before investing. full of beautiful highlights and lowlights. that's why nice'n easy builds dimension into every shade. so here's a challenge: love the gorgeous dimension of nice'n easy or we'll pay for a salon color. take the salon challenge, from nice'n easy. >>> lucky for me, my finances aren't so tight i have to do commercials like failed republica
's not at the top of my list. and he's more interested -- i mean, he thinks that the paul ryan budget really hurts education and research. and he thinks if the government doesn't invest in education and research, then we will not be internationally competitive. the republicans have a completely different view. it's great that they're talking. i think it's wonderful that they're talking but they are at opposite ends philosophically about this. >>brian: the house says okay, there is the budget. you don't like it? the senate is going to do something interesting. they are going to have a budget. excited about it? a senate republican, snorkelly ayotte on -- senator kelly ayotte on greta van susteren's show last night. >> i'm glad the democrats are finally after four years going to do a budget in the senate but basically he's rendering himself irrelevant because his is going to come after the house puts forth his budget, after the senate does his budget. where is he on this issue? you'd think he would have a fiscal blueprint for the country. i'm on the budget committee and we'll be doing it without his
paul ryan has entertained caps. >> people watching the show should realize our deficits grow in both plans, and ryan's plan is for progrowth. but both sides okay with the spending and both sides -- democrats-saying something about taxes. but there's $100 billion in there for a new stimulus plan, which i don't know how well that's going to fly. and then ryan keeping in the notion of appealing obamacare has to -- >> move on. >> that's not going to work at least for the next four years. so you keep it in there, maybe it's something you give up during negotiations. i think people watching the show should feel more hopeful, but to your point, the chasm, we're so far away from a deal, something i wouldn't bet on. >> neil: democrats claim their budget will slash the deficit, but testimony today seemed to contradict that. >> do the outlays in the first year of this budget exceed the outlays of last year's budget? and if so, by how much, both in dollars and percentage? do we know that? >> talking about 14 over 13, sir? >> yes. >> so $116 billion higher and 14 over 13. >> neil: wait a minute.
vice-president nominee and wisconsin congressman paul ryan with 6%. here with the reaction the results and the man who came out on top, kentucky senator rand paul. senator, how are you? >> very good, good to be with you, sean. >> sean: does that mean you're running? >> i can tell it you it was invigorating and it was exciting probably 2000 young kids in the audience and standing and chanting and if you want to find some energy for the conservative movement, you see it it there. at cpac, it's one of the biggest convocations of young people you'll see all year long. >> sean: you took a different tact than some of the other speakers and i found myself in agreement with you, and that is the republican party needs to get tougher. ill h'll be honest, i was surprised when john boehner said he trusted obama. he has been duplicitous and trying to get boehner fired. why would he say he trusts him? >> there are a lot of things we believe in and shouldn't give up on and some of the things i was talking about, i think, attracts people from both the left and right and that's supporting your right to
the administration trying to draw it back. paul ryan wants to rescind the whole healthcare program and start fresh, but that's unlikely. so given that distinct possibility, what are we left with? >> well, i'm not as pessimistic as you are. i think there is just a slight chance that maybe some people who have pushed this thing forward, can stop for a moment and instead of thinking about themselves and their own political agenda and their own political future, think about the good of the people and the good of america. i think there's still that slight possibility. it doesn't seem great, i admit, but it's possible, and it's something we should work toward. assuming that doesn't occur, we need be looking at all the legal possibilities that exist in order to save us from this financial disaster, which is pouring fuel on the fire which is the incredible debt that continues to pile up day-by-day, which some people don't think is even a problem. >> neil: you were one of the first in the medical community to say these are enter linked. that got you invited to cpac, where you quickly became one of the star
year. in addition to that, the big thing they are fighting about in washington is the paul ryan budget. it's the same budget paul ryan and romney ran on in the election when they lost with the weaknesses that caused them to lose like taking a hatchet to health care and the generous tax cut to the rich that somehow pays for its. what you want details? you know better than that. this is groundhog day in republican politics. soon, they are going to float hillary clinton is going to replace joe biden as vice president again. all of this stuff, the welfare lie, the obama phone lie. the kill medicare budget that we don't have to explain, trust us. it's republicans trying to get traction on stuff they did not get traction on before when they were busy trying not to lose in the november elections and they lost anyway. in that election, it was actually the democrats who really did get traction on part of that issue. it was democrats who did get traction when this tape showed the republicans real argument on this stuff and all the naked behind closed doors glory. the republican's presidential ca
, chris christie, paul ryan, scott walker, ben carson, ted cruz, bobby jindal and sarah palin. joining us now, nbc analyst and mccain senior adviser, steve schmidt, analyst and obama re-election campaign adviser robert gibbs and huffington post editorial director howard fineman. robert gibbs, this is your debut performance on the last word. we have a motto that's very republican. it is not what you say but how you say it. keep that in mind. >> i have to say that lead in provides an exceedingly low bar for which i can roll right over. you know, chairman priebus may have cued it perfectly. >> months later, he figured it out. >> might have spent less paper figuring out the two or three things they did right in 2012 rather than all of what they did wrong. i think they have a herculean task on their shoulders because it isn't about how you say it. obviously spending $10 million to do outreach with the same message will result in the same outcome. they have a huge problem in what they say, not in how they say it. and i think the biggest problem for the chairman of the rnc is he is not going to
september. the budgets have gone out. paul ryan said here is mine. take a look. i balance it in ten years. chris van hollen on the democratic side said i have a better idea. in the house, we like to have our version and it will be $1.2 trillion in new taxes, 200 billion in stimulus. now, ladies and gentlemen, if you want a democratic house in 2014, that's what your country is going to look like. >> steve: later today the house of representatives is going to consider paul ryan's budget, plus they're going to consider five alternative budgets. one, patty murr i wouldn't he -- murray, the democrat senator from her state. the congressional black caucus', progressive caucus' budget, the republican study committee budget, which balances the budget in five years, not in ten years like paul ryan's. and chris van hollen's budget as well. meanwhile, the haggling continues in washington. the charm offensive of the president, he was being honest, wasn't he? he really was trying to charm the republicans. yet, brit hume was on last night with bret baier on his former program and said whether it worked,

committee. >> even with the tea party and i come from a state that elected ron johnson, paul ryan, scott walker. i don't think anybody believes that having 23 debates makes a lot of sense. >> greta: do you think that-- you don't think the rand pauls or some the tea party candidates want more debates? >> i think that there can be a reasonable amount, greta, to get this right. i think if you have half that amount, if you have 12 debates. >> greta: that's enough. >> in 1980 there were six debates. in 1984 there were seven debates. now we have 22 debates of candidates slicing and dicing each other, in front of, in many cases, media personalities that are not in the business of promoting our candidates or the issues, they're in the business of creating news at the expense of our candidates. we need to be involved in who is doing the debates. who the moderators are. how many there are and i'm not talking about going down to two debates. i'm talking about a dozen debates. that's a lot of debates. >> greta: what about you and former rnc chair, steele? >> there is no exchange of words. i've not a
. the white house slamming congressman paul ryan's budget plan yet the white house hasn't bothered to put out its own budget. the law says that the president must submit a budget by the first part of february. and kelly ayotte. >> good to be with you. >> greta: and you're not responsible for the president, but are you curious? >> i'm very curious where it is. you think about it, i'm glad the senate democrats are finally going to do a budget in the senate, but basically he's rendered himself irrelevant because his budget is apparently going to come after the house puts forth its budget, after the senate does its budget, and so, where is he on this issue? you'd think he would have a fiscal blueprint for the country. >> greta: now what i don't get? you're a lawyer, i'm a lawyer and maybe i'm too literal about it he's obligated to do it i think by the first monday in february. presidents before him have also failed and not the first time the president-- and he's failed a number of times. and when all of these presidents, the reason why we have the rules, we have some semblance of order. he said n
to have to cut kids, cut kids. that's not what paul ryan's budget does, but listen to the democrats the rhetoric, propaganda, misinformation and frankly the lies they continue to tell. let's roll this tape. >> you look at his principles, you look at his vision and they're a nightmare for america, he wants americans to work until they die. he wants poor people who get sick not to be able to see a doctor and not to get the care he needs. not to get better, he wants them to die. >> this is the alternative to balance, it results in unfair tax hikes on middle class americans and results in undue burden on middle class americans through the cuts envisioned. >> this republican budget once again makes an ideological, uncompromising approach to addressing that budget challenge. >> perhaps the best thing i can tell you about the republican budget is that here we go again. >> yesterday americans got their first look at this year's ryan republican budget. turns out it it looks like last year's ryan republican budget and it wasn't the only one. i wasn't the only one that said, gee-whiz, not agai
't even pay taxes. republicans are already blasting the plan. they support congressman paul ryan's budget proposal which seeks to balance a budget without any new taxes, only spending cuts. it also calls for repealing president obama's healthcare overhaul, something that democrats say, well, frankly, it can't happen. mike emanuel with the news live on capitol hill tonight. it was the democrat's turn. what did they say. >> the white house put out a statement concrete plan boost the economy and reduce deficits. today the chairman of the senate budget committee made her pitch. >> our budget reflects the pro-growth, pro-middle class agenda that the american people went to the polls of in support of in the last election. and i believe it is is a strong and responsible vision for building a foundation for growth and restoring the promise of american opportunity. >> though senator murray and white house like it not clear how senate democrats up for re-election 2014 will feel about voting on another 1 trillion-dollar tax increase. shep? >> shepard: we heard today from com ryan. he is contrasting
to earth. but the house budget chairman paul ryan pushes ahead with his plan to balance the nation's books with major spending cuts. he'll join us live this hour. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room. . >>> it may be president obama's first official visit to israel but all eyes right now are on syria. the president says he's trying to find out if the damascus regime has crossed a u.s. red line by using chemical weapons against syrians. >> we intend to investigate thoroughly exactly what happened. obviously, in syria right now you've got a war zone. you have information that's filtered out but we have to make sure that we know exactly what happened. we know that there are those in the syrian government who have expressed a willingness to use chemical weapons if necessary to protect themselves. i am deeply skeptical of any claim that in fact it was the opposition that used chemical weapons. once we establi the facts, i have made clear that the use of chemical weapons is a game changer. >> strong words from the president. let's go straight to cnn's john king. he's on the scene trav
have a big pontiff. jorge bergoglio is now the next pope. paul ryan made news with an unveiling of his own. as house budge chairman, he proposed a budget for fiscal year 2014. in theory, lowering taxes and repealing the affordable health care act. it's the same paul ryan budget that paul ryan has been promoting for years. that frustration may have led him to dismiss patty murray's counter. he said if you read the senate bill you will find that the vatican is not the only place blowing smoke this week. >>> also making headlines with a more cordial attitude, president obama continued his charm offensive in hopes of reaching a deal and ending the sequester that is now in the sec week. we'll have to wait and see if the efforts reveal any sults. it's understandable if you missed this news item. on monday in chicago, as a young father changed the diaper of his 6-month-old baby girl on the seat of a mini van, a gunman opened fire. the young father, jonathan watkins was hit three times as he witnessed a bullet tear through the body of his daughter who later died. watkins was released from the
, and while they said paul ryan's plan as extreme and tonight there are questions of the democrat's budget by patty murray and why are they saying they'll reduce 1.9 billion dollars declining to account for the spending. he confronted murray's staff yesterday. take a look. >> and we're looking at a situation, where you're double counting and not counting a trillion dollars in extra spending. you're not counting a trillion dollars in extra spending by saying we're going to just turn off the sequester which allows a trillion dollars more in spending to occur and not count it. that's what we want to know and we intend to find out before this day is over and my colleagues, if i'm wrong about this, i'll accept being in error, but our staff has looked at this. i can't possibly see how it's any other way than i have explained it. now, we've got other members who want to ask questions. >> yes, we do-- >> a trillion dollars, we're really showing how it is that our country is in such financial state. >> senator jeff sessions. here is what else we know about the murray budget. according to the budget

, the house is due to vote on the paul ryan budget. that's gotten a whole lot of buzz. he made his final pitch tonight. >> we need to balance the budget. balancing the budget is necessary for a healthy economy, for creating jobs. for giving our kids a debt-free nation. that's why we do this. their budget, despite what they say, never ever balances. >> now, to be clear, the paul ryan budget nor the senate democrat budget will become the law of the land. they will both pass very different budgets, and it will be up to a conference committee to work out the differences, shep? >> shepard: mike emanuel on capitol hill. the war in iraq began 10 years ago this week. we have been catching up with some the marines who led the ground invasion. just a few days later, they were fighting in the middle of a sandstorm outside baghdad. a couple of weeks after that they had toppled saddam hussein. and, well, we got some pictures. they were hanging out in one of the bombed out palaces. it would be more than 8 years before the final u.s. troops left iraq for good. as many wondered why we were there in the first
and you you heard some of that yesterday from representative paul ryan, the chairman of the house budget committee as he was rolling out his own budget that seeks to balance the budget over the next decade by doing away with a locality of health care reform, by streamlining the federal tax code. but president obama in an interview with abc news, says when it comes to the timeline, it's not what he has in mind. >> my goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. my goal is how do we grow the economy, put people back to work, and if we do that, we're going to be bringing in more revenue. if we've controlled spending and we've got a smart entitlement package, potentially what have you is balanced, but not balanced on the backs of, you know, the poor, the elderly, students who need student loans, family who's have disabled kids. that's not the right way to balance a budget. >> so the president is sitting down meeting with republicans, hoping he can work through some of these thorny fiscal issues, hoping there can be compromise, but there is the big sticking point, how

of the year. thousas are taking part in cpac 2013 including big names like marco rubio, paul ryan, jeb bush, rand paul. one or all four of those men could end up fighting it out for the republican presidential nomination in 2016. but this cpac better known as the conservative political action conference sometimes is described as part rally, part political revival, part family reunion. thank you for giving us that qualification. one thing they do is they have a vote. a straw poll of the big names in the republican party to see who is potentially up there in the big names for 2016. sarah palin, on it. won it way back in the day. jeb bush, not on it. jeb bush not on the list. one of the biggest names talked about. why. >> he would be formidable if he were to seek the republican national convention. he's promoting his new book on immigration. we are told from sources that he asked that his name not be on the straw poll. that was his basic decision though he's a major speaker there. we'll see who wins the straw poll. it doesn't necessarily mean that whoever wins will get that republican presiden

presidential election, mitt romney and paul ryan both told us that there were trillions of dollars of tax breaks for very wealthy people, they proposed to eliminate them as part of tax reform where they reduced the rate. we say, let's take some of that revenue to help reduce the deficit, combined with other targeted cuts. >> be more specific for me. when you talk about tax loopholes and the very wealthy. which specific loopholes and what is very wealthy? >> sure, sure, these are, when you're in the highest tax bracket, you're in the 39% tax bracket when you get a deduction, whatever it may be for, you get 39 cents worth of deduction. whereas somebody who is in the 28% tax bracket only gets 28 cents deduction for that particular deduction. so what we're saying and this is similar to a proposal the president's put forward, is that for folks who are in that very high bracket, the 39% bracket, the value of your deductions will be limited to about 28% which is what the value of deductions is for a middle income taxpayer. >> so ultimately, the budget that you have there and i just read the litt
of the party, senator marco rubio and paul ryan will speak just 11 minutes. the question, is c-pac giving the wrong people the biggest platform? pete? >> yes, i bet you anything my friend will cain will totally agree with me. on much of this, the idea that this organization and other conservative commentators i thought are more out for themselves, making money for themselves than the conservative movement this is antithetical of what the conservative movement needs to move. why not bring strom thurmond back from the dead? donald trump and sarah palin are done. put the fork in them. the future is marco rubio and the day groups and they are not inviting them. >> they haven't this year. will. >> that depends on c-pac wants to be if they want to guide future direction of republican party, the answer quite obviously no. donald trump has a bigger role than chris christie is absurd. but if you want to sell tickets, you have probably done are right things. and some who realize those two things aren't necessarily mutually exclusive. and ran paul proved that. stand on principles, be smart, get peop
. just one day after the house budget committee approved paul ryan's blueprint plan which would balance the budget in a decade. patty murray released a plan which would cut annual deficits, but leave the country with a $566 billion shortfall after ten years. this while that back and forth continues on another issue, the white house tours. who exactly is to blame? the president said during an interview, it wasn't up to him. and inconsistent response from that of its press secretary, jay carney. >> you know, i have to say, this was not a decision that went up to the white house, but what the secret service explained to us was that they're going to have to furlough some folks. >> we had to cancel the tours. it's our job to cancel the tours. they can not cancel them. so because this is not a tour of the secret service building. it's a tour of the white house and the grounds. we run the tours. >> raising eyebrows is the president's comments during an interview where he said the u.s. debt, which is inching closer and closer to 17 trillion, is, quote, not an immediate crisis. republican senat
the here and now. paul ryan just released his budget. do you support it? >> i do support paul ryan's budget. it is a comprehensive plan to address the growing unfunded liabilities of the entitlement programs at the federal level. so that we can save the safety net for those who need it. and that we can bring the budget into balance and grow the economy. that's the essence of what the plan is about. >> mr. leader, in order to achieve that balance, to balance the budget, it also assumes that $600 billion in tax increases that you opposed in january. >> well, i mean, unfortunately, we have, in fact, after the last election, a situation where the status quo of the president there, the democratic controlled senate and the republican house, that those tax increases were something that the president supported. but i can tell you, if you look at the alternative vision coming out of the senate, there really is a two separate visions of the way this country ought to go. on the one hand, we have the house budget that is -- promotes a balance within ten years, that can grow our economy. and that you ca
republicans sit down with paul ryan to talk budget. the senator john barrasso joins us next and here's a check on the forecast. bill? >> no comment from you? you sed it up. good morning, everyone. snow has been falling in areas of new england and now we are getting a break especially from about massachusetts, connecticut and rhode island southward. the roads are improving. we are mostly confined to heavy snow and northwards. we are fill it in in vermont and new hampshire. it's cold newscast boston area. we will begin to end from here. airport delays not too bad. philadelphia 45 and that's about it. a lot of places were canceled. almost worse than the snow this morning are the wind chills here from further to the minneapolis area. indianapolis shouldn't have a wind chill of 12 this time of year. this is warm and beautiful mid-to late march and they have brutal wind chills. the cold is from the northern half of the country to canada and that continued to 32 in chicago. orlando and miami. a i lot of people ask me when will this end and warm up? this takes us through the next seven days. even this
, not eliminating medicare as i'm afraid the paul ryan budget would do, but making sure it will survive tore generations to come. putting revenues on the table that are fair and won't penalize the working people across america. and making sure it's a balanced approach. i think what bob corker said from his side is a basic set of principles that both parties can rally over. >> brian: what do you think? are we close? >> it sounds like they're getting there. it sounds like they're getting a clot closer. we hope it will be the right deal and i was surprised to hear tax increases because we're already one of the great taxed nations on earth. but they sound like we're getting a little closer. >> ainsley: john boehner says as far as he's concerned, that conversation is overment taxes have already been increased for mens back in january with the fiscal cliff. >> they made the tax deal back in january and everyone thought that was going to be the end of it. i think people that really know something about negotiation didn't necessarily feel that. they made that deal and all of a sudden the next day th
to citizenship. ryan is flirting with it. but aside from rand paul and marco rubio, where are those voices in the house? if anything we're going to see very strong opposition from the republican party and if anything a latino is leading that charge. >> you know, joe, victoria you can take this. at cnbc we look at the business side of it. i want to ask more wholistic question, why are people so scared of this, a pathway to citizenship? what is the fear? >> 1986. the failure of 1986. >> border security is part of the deal in 1986 or at least not executed on. and so the fear is, i know a lot -- among a lot of rank and file republicans and joe you know this and heard this, that we have a repeat of '86. okay, fine, we give full amnesty to the 11 million, 12 million people and there is no check on border security. and then ten years, 20 years from now we have another 15, 20 million illegal -- >> all reagan's amnesty bill is encourage more illegal immigrants to jump the fence and come over here. that is a real concern as alex said in my ear, it was 1986, what did that lead to? the mets winning th
